Would you recommend me a good 35mm taking lens that can go wide open but still sharp enough for use with a Kowa 8z on a gh2. 

 

What would be the sharpest lens possible for that combination?

 

What would be the best/reasonably cheap option?

 

Any recommendations accepted.

 

What hack would you use for sharpest image. Sedna Aq1?

 

Thanks!

Hi. I use a 37mm MIR-1B f2.8 with my Kowa 16-H (8Z is the same lens), and I love it. Very Russian, and a rectilinear flektagon copy, so it doesn't add any distortion to the image (keep in mind the Kowa still will, though). 

 

I also use Sedna, but everyone has been praising Driftwood's new Moon GOP1 setting, so I'm switching to that. Some other former Sedna users really seem to like Moon and think it is similar but grades better. (Note: I haven't actually tried it yet.)

Andy,

 

You mention liking the Carl Zeiss Flektogon 35mm f2.4 lens as your taking lens for the Kowa 8z. What's the lens diamater of the Flektogon lens and how do you attach it to the Kowa 8z? Do you use a lens clamp (which kind) or direct attachment with step-up/down adaptors (which kind)?

 

Thanks!

Stefan

      Hi everyone!
      I wanted to showcase my passion project "The Night Knows No Shore" here on EOSHD. I've been a long time reader of Andrew's blog and it was his footage that inspired me to get an Iscorama a long time ago. 
      After doing tests with it for a while I came up with this idea for a movie. And you can now see the result on youtube: 
       
       
      It's a project made by one single actor and one single crew member (me) with one single focal length (a Canon FD 85mm 1.8) and one single focus anamorphic lens ( Iscorama pre-36). Don't expect much action. It's a slow film with lots of monologues and no real plot. It's about one young man's thoughts on society, religion, art, philosophy, life in general. Have a look. If you don't like all the "pretentious" talking, maybe you like the footage. Let me know what you think. If you have any questions, just ask. Enjoy!
